Waaaaah!

Pardon me while I have a good cry.



One of my novels has gone out of print.

This is a first for me.

I'm partial to all of my books, of course.....but I have a special place in my heart for this one.

Ah, BOOOOOO....
I am sad with you. :..(

*blubbers helplessly in sympathy*

Anne Lamott must have something wise and soothing to say on this topic -- do you have Bird by Bird?

Totally sad with you. Moonpie and Ivy was the first book of yours I read (and when I became a totally devoted fan.)

It feels utterly crummy, doesn't it? Sigh. Can I Pray With My Eyes Open? went OOP a couple of years ago and I am still trying to recover.

I am sorry about your loss, but I am rolling with laughter over your crying picture! Where in the world do you find such great images??

Barbara O'Connor said...

Thanks, y'all...for the sympathy.

Sarah: I do have Bird by Bird.

Karen: corbis.com - a wealth of photos

Barbara O'Connor said...

Or that one could have been Google images...I forget now. I'm too busy crying...

That stinks, Barbara. I loved that one, too. :(

P.S. My mom has a CUBA tablecloth.

Not fun at all. I hope you have several copies. Our library has a single well-loved copy.
